Live, Die, Vote

Camus was kinda hot.
Born on this day
Albert Camus - "A single sentence will suffice for modern man: He fornicated and read the papers."
Joni Mitchell - "I was a punk in the fifties."
Judy Tenuta - "This guy says, 'I'm perfect for you, 'cause I'm a cross between a macho and a sensitive man.' I said, 'Oh, a gay trucker?'"

Died on this day
Count Leo Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy - "Boredom: the desire for desires."
Eleanor Roosevelt - "Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't."
Steve McQueen - “I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth.”
Will Durant - "Life oscillates between Voltaire and Rousseau, Confucius and Lao-Tze, Socrates and Christ. After every idea has had its day with us and we have fought for it not wisely or too well, we in our turn shall tire of the battle, and pass on to the young our thinning fasicle of ideals. Then we shall take to the woods with Jacques, Jean-Jacques, and Lao-Tze; we shall make friends of the animals, and discourse more contentedly than Machiavelli with simple peasant minds; we shall leave the world to stew in its own deviltry, and shall take no further thought of its reform." [That one's for you, Prof.]
Lawrence Durrell - "Poetry is what happens when an anxiety meets a technique." [That one's for you Charles.]


If you haven't already, please take the time to vote today.
